Hi, I have a question. I have an s2000 with a rear view camera installed in they key hole, but it no longer opens. When I press the button from inside the glove compartment, it doesn’t open or click either. When this first happened, I couldnt use it for a few days, then one day, I decided to try it out, and it magically worked again. Then the day right after, it stopped working for good. Every since then (8 months ago) it stopped working. I can’t open my trunk manually, and I checked the fuse and it seemed fine. I was wondering if you had any suggestions since I cannot get my trunk to open. Thanks!!

I have a ’07 S2000 and want to switch out a winged trunk lid with a non winged one from another owner. Question is, what’s necessary from a lock standpoint in making the switch? Both electronically and mechanically.
